Welcome to the website of Church of the Palms, a part of the United Methodist Church, where we believe a life connected to God, and a life connected to one another, is the most meaningful life there is!
Great day at the 2014 Church of the Palms Fall Festival. So good to see all the smiling faces on such a beautiful day!

The Youth of Church of the Palms are focusing on the mission project of collecting funds or donations of NEW underwear and socks for the students at Okatie Elementary.
The all children sizes are needed and should be just basic white underwear and socks.
You may leave donations of underwear or socks in the box in the Narthex.
Financial donations should be made out to Church of the Palms - with "Youth Mission Project" in the memo line.
Thank you for helping our Youth help other children.
This month our requests turn toward personal needs and household items for our friends at Access Network.
Shampoo, conditioner, soap, razors and deodorant are always in demand. Also toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, dish soap, laundry detergent and dryer sheets will be very welcome.
Please pick up a handy shopping list from the Kiosk, and bring your donations any time during the month of October. Thank you for your caring hearts!
Gratitude and thanks are extended to those who have already started making contributions to the Building Fund in support of Vision 2020.
Your generosity and committement is very much appreciated.
If you wish to contribute, simply mark your gifts as going to the Building Fund.
The Brothers! will meet Thursday, October 30 at 8 a.m. to continue their study of 1 Corinthians at Chapter 6.
First Corinthians is one of the gems of Christian literature. It is one of the 7-9 books in the New Testament that most scholars agree was written by Apostle Paul.
When the people in Corinth received this letter, it probably made them angry. That is because this letter deals with problems in the Corinthian church and some of those same people were the source of the problems. This not unlike our situation today. As we study this book, we will discover their problems are still with us today - either as exact copies or in modern equivalents!Read more...
Brothers Too!, an early Saturday morning breakfast and Bible study with Pastor Pete, continues November 8, at 7:30 a.m. at the church building.
Never too late to join this study, the group will pick up the study of Luke at Luke 19:11.
Meeting every other Saturday, this time of fellowship starts with breakfast from 7:30 a.m. – 8 a.m. followed by a Bible study until 8:30 a.m. Open to all men, this new opportunity is especially designed for those still working or with other obligations during the week.Read more...

Did you know.... we are managers, not owners of all that God has placed in our trust? The days we live, the positions we fill, the children we nurture, the people we influence, the home we live in, the money in our accounts...all belong to God.
Of these, stewardship of our money can be the most challenging. We must remember...God does not need our money. What God wants is what that money represents – our hearts. A heart that is generous toward God and things of God is a heart that is close to God.
